Liverpool played in front of 45,013 spectators at Anfield against newly-promoted Swansea City

Already slated to have a poor season, Swansea came to Merseyside to prove to everyone that they were Premier League material. 

The home side got off to a confident and bright start after coming from a 2-0 victory over West Bromwich. Andy Carroll had a great chance to put the Reds up a goal, but his shot ended up bouncing off the crossbar (anyone counting?). 

The visitors created some chances and fielded dangerous passes through the Liverpool back four, but the defenders stood vigilant and helped Pepe Reina rein in the Swansea attack. 

However, the Swans surprised the hosts as Danny Graham unleashed a fierce shot, which Reina saved mid-air. 

The Swans proved to be a tough match as they produced quick counters over and over again which almost resulted in a goal by Nathan Dyer.

Dirk Kuyt was called offsides after he had scored for the Reds and the match ended in a drab 0-0 draw against a side that, at least on paper, should have been easy to dominate.

At least Liverpool recorded a clean sheet.
